Let Excel be your calculator. Take this course to learn how to add, subtract, multiply, and divide using formulas and functions.
Charts provide a visual representation of your data, making it easier to analyze. Each type of chart highlights data differently. And some charts can’t be used with some types of data.
You want to scroll down and see your rows of data, but when you get to the bottom of the screen, your column names in the top row have disappeared. To fix this, you freeze the top row so that it’s always visible. Good news – the command is easy to get to. Click View > Freeze Panes > Freeze Top Row.
One of the key things you’ll calculate in Excel are values in cells, the boxes you see in the grid of an Excel worksheet. Each cell is identified by its reference—the column letter and row number that intersect at the cell’s location. For example, a cell in column D and row 5 is cell D5. When you use cell references in a formula, Excel calculates the answer automatically using the numbers in the referenced cells.
You can add headers to the top and footers to the bottom of a worksheet. When you print the worksheet, the headers and footers also print. For example, you might create a header with the file path and a footer with page numbers. Headers and footers display only in Page Layout view and on printed pages.

Excel is an amazing tool for analyzing data. And Sort and Filter are some of the most commonly used features to help you. To change the order of your data, you’ll want to sort it. To focus on a specific set of your data, you can filter a range of cells or a table. Take this course to learn more.
It can be hard to get a lot of meaning out of numbers in a worksheet. But Excel provides a bunch of ways to quickly analyze your data using conditional formatting. For example, you can use a color scale to differentiate high, medium, and low temperature values.
Print Excel worksheets and workbooks one at a time, or several at one time. You can also print a partial worksheet, such as an Excel table.
